For decades, computers have slowly been inching their way into our daily lives. That is no surprise to anyone, and we've written about it many times.
If Descartes were here today his famous saying may have become, "I compute therefore I am." Watson crushes the best Jeopardy contestants but a different computer loses horribly to humans in crossword. Smarter seems moot to me. I'm just glad I can type my dyslexic scrawl into a screen and have it come out in a language approximating English.
